We still don’t know how to define the next wave of computing, but as this new era of personal computing grows more and more personal,  wearable computers will become the new source of innovation.” Krzanich showed off a smart bracelet and a smart name badge as examples of concepts under development, and said Intel is looking for opportunities to cooperate in this area.
